Four words: beach, luxury, palm trees! A winning formula ever since the former 1890s-styled Hôtel du Parc was taken over by David Pirone, the owner of La Reine Jane and Le Marais. And he was definitely right to entrust the decor to Haddou Dufourcq studio: between the graphic tiled fireplace framed by white trellises, the wicker sofas and the long poplar burl bar that dresses up the lounge/bar area, the result is a sight for sore eyes, as soon as you enter the building. The dazzling decor continues upstairs in the 40 bedrooms spread out across four floors, each carrying the faint fragrance of fig leaf essence, where cork parquet flooring and various tones of beige and off-white pair beautifully with the transparent brown curtains for an elegant sense of simplicity. What about the hotel grounds? There’s a large terrace with cabochon tiling, surrounded by lush greenery, so you can nibble plates made by the chefs in residence in peace, after going for a dip in the immaculate white-tiled pool… Double rooms starting at €170 a night.

Diptyque soap, shampoo and body wash.
BREAKFAST: €22 (€12 for kids) for a medley of hot drinks, fresh fruit juice, breads, viennoiseries, artisan Olbia en Provence jams, homemade cakes, pancakes, granola and madeleines, seasonal fruit salad, charcuterie, cheese, farm-fresh yogurts and fromage blanc, scrambled eggs, bacon and smoked salmon!
LITTLE LUXURY: Let your gaze linger over the array of frescos, wall paintings, photography, sculptures, ceramics and embroidery by up-and-coming young artists – Jacques Merle, Manon Daviet, Antoine Duruflé…
